    Hello,

    I just got my bed linexed and when I got it back I went to tie down a load and notice one of my tie down hooks was loose. I attempted to tighten it down and noticed the star bolts would not screw in. The threads looks like they might be stripped In the holes the bolts screw into, bolts are fine. Is there a way to replace the threads in the holes?

    You might be able to tap it one size lager. There's also a helicoil but I've never played with 'em.

    Yeah, if you use the hook to tie down, be sure it’s really tight and secure.
